"Quettehou is a lovely area. On arrival to get to the cottage you drive through a lovely archway and has a great garden. It isn't obvious which is the cottage, but it's the middle one. The cottage is OK, but not to any standard I have ever stayed in whilst in the UK. In reality, the cottage is tired and needs quite a bit of work, but that may just be atypical of France. The kitchen is very dated but functional. There is a microwave and a small worktop oven, which just about does what it can. The crockery and cooking utensils are old and tired but usable. A new frying pan doesn't cost much. The filter on the fan above the oven needs cleaning and the steel cleaner left in the sink was rusty. In the utility, there is an old style washing machine (no instructions, but we worked it out) and a small fridge freezer (and I mean small). The downstairs bathroom was ok, though again tired. The shower head is in desperate need of replacing, the light above the sink had wires showing. There were 2 bars of used soap in a dish. Surely new soap for occupants would have been a simple thing.?Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a toilet room. I say toilet room as it's big enough to be a bedroom but has a toilet and a sink and loads of spare space. The bedrooms are big enough, but my oh my, the mattresses in both rooms are so hard. I don't think we got much sleep all week. There is free WiFi, though if you have a problem, just reset it by unplugging the extender and after a few mins putting it back in. This only happened the once and doing that fixed the issue.Overall, the cottage is ok if you are not going to spend much time there, i.e. sleep (well if you like rock hard mattresses that is). The minimum charge for cleaning is 50 Euros. In addition, if you want bedding, take your own. I'm not sure the last time this bedding was replaced, but again it needs replacing. It was clean.There is a BBQ and some garden furniture. Again, it could do with replacing. The umbrella's cloth is worn, the table and chairs (plastic is functional) are not even the same colour. We expected to pay under 100 Euros for the cleaning, bedding for 3 and the tourist tax. It was over and more than we thought it would be. French is his only language.He will show you the meter readings on day one too, on the last day he'll take them again and charge you. For a week our it wasn't bad.The differences from France to the UK are that the cleaning, bedding and utility charges are all included. These add a lot more to your stay (roughly £100). This seems common in France though. Plus, don't expect the standard you are used to in the UK. I'm sure all the rules our cottages adhere to are valid there too (surely come under EU rules?) but don't expect them to be of the same standard. For local shops there is Quettehou (about a mile away) and a medium sized Carrefour (en route to St Vaast La Hougue) that also has a petrol station (about 2 miles from cottage). The tide goes out quite some distance and is amazing to see. You can walk out some way and still be knee deep in the water. The beach is rocky nearby but there are some much sandier beaches a few miles up or down the coast. They are very clean though."

"The cottage was beautifully decorated with a fabulous range of artwork on display in every room (including toilet). It is a big, so more than enough room for a family or a couple with three dogs (like us). The grounds are big as well so plenty for children and dogs to explore, although the gardens were a bit overgrown so need a bit of work. Very quiet and peaceful. The owners have left a very comprehensive personalised guidebook for the local area which we used a lot. The cottage is in a reasonable location for seeing the sights of Normandy with the various D Day beaches around 30-60 min drive away . Bayeux is about a 60 min drive away. Mont St Michel about a 90 min drive. The nearest town, Periers, is about 20 min drive away. The local village has a small shop with the most basic goods on sale, but nothing else. So if you like to eat out each night, you'll need to drive at least 20-25 minutes to find something. The cottage said it has wifi but this is limited and indeed I couldn't get it to work while I was there. Generally a fantastic cottage and we hope to go back soon."

"Brillevast is a good location and the property could be excellent however it was not. There was no welcome pack giving you information such as nearest A&E; shop or restaurant which I found unusual as generally there is some information to help you settle in particularly as the owner/caretaker can’t speak English. The garden couldn’t really be used by the children as the grass was particularly long. The bedding provided was awful (old, tired and stained in places). There was generally a lack of care/upkeep of the property eg. wallpaper secured in places with sellotape. The caretaker/owner seemed genuinely lovely though and tried her best to assist us where she could. Maybe I arrived expecting too much based on the photos of the property. As a location though it was great and the property didn’t stop us from having an excellent holiday."

"The owner was very abrupt when we arrived, her English was non exsistant, so she says The tv satellite card had run out and they tried to charge us an extra 4€ to get a new one, their English was fine thenWe had been charged 60€ cleaning charge, but the Git had cobwebs all over the place The cooker was very slow to warm upAnd the man hole cover at the back of the house kept on coming up and flooding the back patio, when the toilet or shower was used, it stunk, it was horrid The toilet inside the Git didn't flush properly The double beds were very hardIf a little bit of money was spent on it, I would of given it 10/10 Oh the advert says that their is a stream in the back garden, there isn't one Thanks"

"We had a lovely sunny family holiday at the house. The children could walk to the closest beach, and cycle to the second closest beach, so we spent most of our time there. The local roads were flat, which helped our son learn to ride his bike on this holiday. The facilities in the house were very good, and Andre was very welcoming and helpful. The garden had some shaded areas, and the house could be kept cool in the day, which was good in hot weather. The local town centre was quite small, but our children are young so we did not visit there very much, except to buy bread every day from a choice of boulangeries. Overall, we all enjoyed our holiday and would return again."
